- Bichot practise sustainable viticulture, based on observation, prevention and paying attention to the complex balances found in nature. The soil is maintained responsibly, it is judiciously ploughed and fertilized using organic matter. They also encourage manual labour that boosts the plants' natural defenses.
The grapes are hand picked in 25-kg crates. They are sorted once they arrive at the winery and are gravity-fed into tanks. Vinification is carried out according to Burgundian tradition. Maceration and fermentation lasts for 20 to 28 days in conical oak vats. Controlling temperatures allows Bichot to work on different aspects of the wine. First they bring out the fruit of the Pinot Noir at temperatures of between 10° and 14°C and then increase temperatures to 20° - 30°C to develop body and tannins. Daily punching of the cap is adapted to each phase of the maceration and extraction processes. During devatting, careful attention is given to pressing which is done very gently and is guided by tastings to ensure that they extract only the highest quality tannins. Their vinification method aims above all at preserving the balance, harmony and expression of these great terroirs.
The nose reveals aromas of red fruit, which evolve toward a discrete hint of vanilla and liquorice. Fine and mineral, the palate offers balanced structure and a nice long finish.
- 'Cask sample. Quite deep lustrous crimson. Rather light and sweet on the nose. But forward and charming in a sweet idiom. Raspberry juice? For the moment it's a bit simple and embryonic but with any luck it will gain a bit of depth. Vibrant, persistent finish. Maybe it's one of those burgundies that is not impressive initially but manages to build towards a grand finale?' - Jancis Robinson MW
'Comes from the Bichot estate and also Domaine Serveau. It has a pretty bouquet of red cherries and light strawberry fruit. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins, and quite fleshy in style, leading to a harmonious, smooth, satisfying finish.' Neal Martin, Vinous
'Hints of both milk chocolate and vanilla flash on the nose of this wine before ripe red cherry takes centre stage. The palate then frames the red-cherry ripeness with juicy freshness, while notions of vanilla and mocha add a richer spin. It finishes fresh, with palpable tannin and rounded, ripe fruit.' Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Spectator Magazine
